Transform Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers Serving Patients in Falls Church, VA
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin, translucent coating made out of porcelain. They are applied to the teeth to improve their color, size, or shape. They can fix a myriad of cosmetic problems and transform your smile into one of beauty. They are sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics” as they can transform crooked teeth into a beautiful smile in typically just two appointments. Smile makeovers as seen on many television programs are often the result of the placement of porcelain veneers. Veneers can correct many dental problems such as:
Close gaps and spaces between teeth
Lengthen and change the shape of teeth
Whiten stained teeth that resist conventional whitening
Improve the appearance of chipped, cracked or worn teeth
Transform the appearance of crooked teeth
Are Veneers a Good Option for a Total Smile Makeover?
Yes. In fact, when you see a total smile makeover, very often what you are seeing is a brand new set of beautiful porcelain veneers. They can totally transform a smile.
What Can I Expect From the Porcelain Veneer Procedure?
Porcelain veneers take at least two appointments because we must first shape your teeth and prepare them for the new veneers. Typically, this means removing some tooth tissue to make room for the new veneers, and roughing the tooth surface to ensure a tight, strong bond. Next we use our 5D iTero Scanner to take an exact digital impression of your teeth. We then electronically transmit your digital impression to one of the premier labs we work with in the United States to fabricate your beautiful porcelain veneers.
What Can I Expect Once I Have Veneers?
Once the veneer is in place, it will function just like a regular tooth. A veneer is considered a permanent tooth restoration, but that doesn’t mean it is expected to last forever. Proper care and habits and regular dental examinations and cleanings will allow you to keep your veneers looking beautiful.
